Default Re: books too complex for their own good?

I can kill other people's canon characters a LOT more easily than I can off my own! No serious emotional attachment. Heck, I have a couple characters where they're pretty much spoiled babies whom I can barely bring myself to bruise. (They are, however, standing on trapdoors and can be offed if the plot ever really demands. There's only one character who has value alive but none dead.)

Physical and emotional abuse, though, isn't nearly as cruel as making them be WRONG. Just totally, utterly, wrong about something important.
